Confused on the pre-release server configuration


I am trying to configure our installers so we have our server built in. I was looking at the Github description and it says to put the server.json at the same level as the package.json. I cannot find this location. I extracted the exe and cannot find it. Nor does it say where the package.json would be if you needed to create it.

Had anyone done this and can point me in the right direction?

Computer Setup

Windows 10 Pro
RocketChat Electron 3.8.2

  • Operating System: Ubuntu 20.04
  • Deployment Method: Manual
  • Number of Running Instances: 1

I have not done it, but my guess is that you should add this file before building the Electron App.

Additionally, you can add the servers.json at the user preferences folder, it building the app is not an option.

Oh, so i would have to build the app everytime…

I guess I will just have to use the post-installation method. Thank you for your reply!
